The sea of Cortez in Baja California Sur is one of the world’s most diverse bodies of water in the world! From tiny critters to the largest animal to have ever lived, this area provides an opportunity of a lifetime to experience a wide array of interactions.
During the summer months in the Sea of Cortez we can witness a magnificent migration of Mobula rays. They can aggregate in hundreds or even thousands allowing free divers and snorkelers experience one of the most spectacular events on the planet.
Mobulas are filter-feeding elasmobranchs that can reach up to 3.6 ft in size and jump out of the water in groups. They migrate from the Gulf of California all the way to Peru.
Along with the Mobula, we are veery likely to encounter different species of cetaceans – Pilot whales, False killer whales, Dolphins, Sperm whales and with a high likelihood – Orca!
